:: gasp :: are we getting close to audio and power standards for devices?

My gosh, I hope so. The idea of carrying multiple power cubes is sooo 1975. I posted “Standardized Cell Phone Chargers by 2012” back in February, cheering that my HTC Fuze and Motorola Razr devices charged from the USB standard plug. While that’s good news, I am not happy with the HTC audio jack, requiring a dongle to connect for headset audio.
Seems like I’m not the only one: MobileCrunch posts “Long Live 3.5mm: HTC Makes The Switch”, cheering HTC’s decision to use a 3.5mm plug (the standard plug for cheap and expensive headsets) in future devices. Wahoo!
Fewer chargers and dongles .. that has to make everyone smile.
